A Non-Skier’s Guide To Vail

Skiing is just the beginning to a fun time here

While most people head to Vail to ski the legendary back bowls, there are many other things to do in Vail than hitting the slopes. If you’re in the mood for a little retail therapy, beeline to Axel’s and Gorsuch. Axel’s is practically a local institution, featuring a sophisticated mix of European and American designers for men and women. Spanning three floors, Gorsuch stocks items (like cashmere sweaters, premium denim, and fur boots) to up your style game. Other Vail activities include checking out the local dining scene,, but for a truly local experience, bundle up, and ride a snowcat to Game Creek for dinner in a cozy chalet. If you want to spend some time outdoors but don’t feel like skiing, try dogsledding with Winterhawk Dogsled Adventures, where a pack of Alaskan Huskies will guide you through the wintry countryside.
